Apparently, it’s no longer enough to merely deface Confederate monuments, as the feeding frenzy moves on to the next target. In Boston, it’s Columbus now under attack, where a statue in the city’s traditionally-Italian North End was defaced Monday evening. According to local television reports, it was covered in red paint, with “black lives matter” […]
As markets began to crash here and around the world, Greek store shelves went empty, banks closed and Puerto Rico announced it would effectively walk away from repaying $72 billion in debt, hitting many American retirement accounts hard, it might seem like an odd time for Barack Obama’s Twitter account to promote a free trip […]
Trump-bashers everywhere are gloating over news NBC is parting ways with The Donald, but is this all that surprising?
Though the network cites his recent comments on “immigrants” as reason to sever ties, the presidential run alone would have been enough to justify ending its business relationship. Associating in such a way with a declared candidate creates a conflict of interest for any media outlet, especially a national news network.
So why add the ideological angle, is this just another move to pander to political correctness? Will it result in a backlash? Read all »
After enacting a complete ban on Confederate-themed merchandise, Walmart apparently has no problem with the flag of ISIS, the Islamic terror state that regularly beheads innocent people.
When Chuck Netzhammer of Slidell, Louisiana found his request for a Confederate-themed cake denied by the mega-chain, he returned to his local store with the ISIS image, which they happily created for him.
Netzhammer has documentation and receipts as evidence of the sequence of events and the company is feigning ignorance, claiming local bakery workers weren’t familiar with the flag. He made this clip to show the cake:
Walmart has since apologized.
Remember, folks: Dukes of Hazzard bad, jihad good!
A Fox Business Channel reporter who questioned a stock exchange’s political activism was labeled a “hater” in a tweet from its official Twitter account yesterday that also featured an image of a skunk.
Though he personally supports gay marriage, longtime senior correspondent and author Charles Gasparino asked NASDAQ why it had become so seemingly political in the wake of the US Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling in favor of it. The exchange’s official Twitter account had posted several messages in support of the decision in addition to a Vine clip showing a rainbow flag above the electronic NASDAQ logo on Times Square.
Later, NASDAQ deleted nearly all of its tweets referencing Gasparino, who regularly covers its corporate developments as part of his duties. But the Media Equalizer was able to obtain a screenshot showing the skunk. Read all »
Just how worried is Hillary Clinton over the suddenly-surging Bernie Sanders? Concerned enough that key supporters are taking to MSNBC to attack the Vermont senator.
But will it work, or backfire? Fellow US Senator Claire McCaskill, a Clinton supporter, delivered a scathing assessment of her colleague during today’s Morning Joe, repeatedly calling Sanders “a socialist” and accusing the media of giving him “a pass”.
As co-host Joe Scarborough pointed out, however, most of Bernie’s supporters already know he’s a socialist and are quite happy about it.
Did Senator McCaskill consider whether calling attention to that on MSNBC would actually hurt Sanders, or unintentionally help his campaign? Could this even boost his fundraising efforts?
Does Greg Gutfeld owe Rush Limbaugh an apology? The Fox News Channel host blasted the radio host yesterday over the latter’s assertion the American flag will be the next target after all traces of the Confederate version have been scrubbed from our society.
During The Five yesterday, Gutfeld was particularly critical, accusing Limbaugh of utilizing a “fear tactic” not unlike the way the left scares its voters into believing contraception will be taken away if their candidates fail to win an election: Read all »
First, the Confederate flag was banned, now, how about films that show images of it?
It’s been a busy week for political correctness, where anyone with a complaint against anything is taking advantage of shifting winds and pushing for an outright ban.
This afternoon, New York Post film critic Lou Lumenick added his target to the list, Gone with the Wind, labeling it “insidious”. He believes it should be relegated to museums as opposed to continued regular showings elsewhere. Read all »
